The Three MusketeersClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the violent content in this take on The Three Musketeers will be a factor for younger viewers -- good and bad guys die (mostly by the sword), and there's one suicide by jumping. And while much of the frequent sexual innuendo will go over kids' head, there's plenty of ogling, kissing, and cleavage/overflowing corsets for them to see. Teamwork and loyalty are strong themes, but characters also struggle with self-doubt/recrimination and have clearly made mistakes. Expect some drinking/carousing, but language doesn't get much stronger than "damn."
- Sexual Content
- The heroes have women falling all over them, most of whom are about to fall out of their costumes -- lots of heaving bosoms/cleavage/partially clad ladies. An evil cardinal threatens and tries to seduce women. Lots of kissing, talk of love, and wooing. A woman takes a bath and appears nude from the waist up (viewers see her bare back). A man tries to grope a woman who pulls a knife on him, placing it at his private area. Frequent innuendo.
- Lots of sword- and fist-fighting. People are shown being killed, but blood is minimal. Scenes of torture; a man who begged for mercy is killed (viewers see the shadow of his stabbing). Cannon fire. A suicide is also shown when a woman jumps from a cliff (not shown hitting the water below).
- Name calling and mild swear words like "damn."
- Social Behavior
- Teamwork, honor, duty, and loyalty are strong themes, even in the face of self-doubt/recrimination and regret. Bad behavior is punished (often violently).
